I've just started trying to develop my list properly. I'd got it up to 500 people very slowly, but have now started giving away an ebook which means I bring in about 15 new subscribers per day.
I'm developing an auto-responder series and the first message went out yesterday.
The "problem" is that subscribers are replying to me with questions. I realise that this is probably a good thing really... They're engaged enough to reply, they value the advice my site can offer, they have problems that I can help them solve, etc.
However - I'm not actually an expert in my niche. I know a little bit about it, but the site was mainly built using freelancers. And they might not even have been experts but just researched online.
Also, my niche is pet care. I wouldn't want to give bad advice on any subject, but particularly not about caring for an animal.
And finally, if I do research each email online and send a proper answer, that's going to take up a lot of time!
So what do I do? I hate ignoring people but I don't want to spend all my time researching email replies. Plus, this is when I have 500 subscribers... What happens when I have 5000?!
